About this book

What does happen to the food we dont eat all those discarded apple cores and rejected Brussels sprouts? Did you know that there are as many living organisms in a teaspoon of soil as there are people in the whole world? And that wriggly worms are our helpful, earthy friends? In Compost, Ben Raskin shares his expert knowledge, answering these questions and many more, through a whole heap of engaging activities and games.

Teach your kids that composting is fun (and stop them moaning about emptying the compost bucket) with this funky guide which takes you from compost menus who knew worms were gourmets? to Worms & Ladders, a fresh take on a very traditional board game. Find out the rules for setting up your very own Worm Lovers Society, learn all about the plot-to-plate cycle together, and get your family out creating compost together.
